One of the many invaluable serv-
ices that the University Fresh Air
Camp has rendered to the thousands
of underprivileged children of Detroit
and Ann Arbor who attend the sum-
mer camp has been in teaching them
Over the period of 13 years since
the camp was begun in 1919 it is
estimated that nearly 2,000 boys have
been taught swimming, or close to
one-half of the 4,500 who have been
at the camp. Swimming. is one of the
principal sports that is carried on
at the camp, the daily schedule call-
ing for a short dip before breakfast,
optional for the braver ones, a 45-
minute swim before lunch, and a
third long plunge in the lake late in
It has been shown numerous times
that swimming is one of the most
healthy sports for general bodily de-
velopment and camp officials stress it
in this manner as they aim toward
developing children at the camp as
completely as possible in the short
time they are there. Many of them
come to the Patterson Lake location
without ever having been out of the
city, and the advantages which it
offers them are felt to be of greater
importance in the determination of
their future careers.
Careful supervision of the children
while they are in the water is exer-
cised. There are five life guards and
four instructors on duty at all times.
Camp leaders have explained that
learning to swim not only gives these
hundreds of boys protection in case
of emergency but also gives them a
feeling of achievement "so necessary
to character development." In addi-
tion they are taught many facts of
boating, such as how to get into and
out of a boat, the maximum number
allowed in safety, how to use the oars,
